Summary
This unique book uses innovative computerized oral-formulaic analysis of the Arabic text of the Qur'an to demonstrate that much of the Qur'an was composed live in oral performance. It explores the rich oral culture that both predated and preceded the Qur'an's formative period, and shows that only by viewing the Qur'an through an oral lens can one begin to properly understand the process by which it first coalesced
